    welcome to hwc. not too familiar how the m250 works, but i have been wanting to get one. what program do you use to put mp3's onto the player? is it software from sandisk? it sounds like the program you use isnt set to permanently delete the songs. post as much detail as you can about how you try to delete the songs, im sure we can figure this out for you.

    Based on the link Shinma found, it sounds like your player is in "MTP" mode. See if you can figure out how to change it to "MSC" mode to delete the files through windows explorer.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.

    What operating system are you using?

    You could try formating the card.

    Another suggestion would be to upgrade the Firmware of the player. (Information Here).

    These actions should not be taken lightly if you do not understand the procedure or the implications.

    What else you may try is creating Folders and moving some of the files into them. Try not to have more than 500Mb in the root drive or any given folder.

    It keeps me from asking dumb questions. Actually, it helps qualify or disqualify the product. The Sansa should work with Windows 2000.

    Try creating folders and moving files into them.

    ive done some searching. it seems there is a problem with this player and rhapsody music. can i bet you are using rhapsody to get your songs? it looks like you have to re-sync your mp3 player with rhapsody, then delete the songs from there. you cannot delete the songs directly from the mp3 player.

    well, maybe that is your best bet. where did you get it from? if its best buy, circuit city or compusa they should be able to help you out, hands-on.

    im still thinking its something that youre just not doing quite right- what program are you using to put songs onto the player?
